TMC uses both Centrifugal Molecular Stills (CMS) and Packed Column Stills.
Our CMS technology uses a short-path, thin-film process that operates under a medium to high vacuum. It allows for lower distillation temperatures, thus a gentler process. There is also a short residence time which protects against thermal degradation. The flexibility of the equipment allows for the ability to distill high molecular weights up to 5000+ on a pilot and production scale.

Our medium vacuum, packed column still technology allows for multiple plate distillation using up to 60 theoretical plates. This process is best suited for fractionation of similar boiling point organic chemicals. It uses a medium vacuum to .5 mm, making for very exacting cuts.
